Episode #731: Pants Suit and Toupee
First Broadcast: 4/25/16
The results from the New York State Presidential Primary are in, and the victors were Hillary Clinton on the Democratic side (even though she lost almost all of upstate), and Donald Trump on the Republican side (even though he lost the one county where he lives to John Kasich). It wasn't the big win that Bernie Sanders might have been hoping for (especially in the city, where Hillary Clinton swept most of the five boroughs), but there are two aspects of this that should give Sanders supporters hope. One: New York State was forecast to be a win for Clinton as far back as February, while still giving Sanders a path for the Democratic nomination. And two: If current trends continue, Sanders has been forecast by at least one group to take the lead in pledged delegates on May 9th, give or take a few days (although I don't have access to the math used to make that calculation). So, don't despair! As Yogi Berra once said, "It ain't over till it's over." And there's still a lot to go between now and July 25!
So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a
this neat little
public access TV show on
Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the
tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else,
Kim. The complicated answer
is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which
don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times,
the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.
If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel
like sending me snail mail, the address is:
Free New York
P.O. Box 20945
Tompkins Square Station
New York, NY 10009
You can also email me at email@example.com, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
Check back later. I'm sure something will turn up.
